Few brands do boots better than German-born British shoemaker Dr Martens. Beloved of punks the world over, this 1947-founded brand has gone from cult favourite to global fixture. Gigi Hadid, Gwen Stefani and Robert Pattinson are all fans of its fearless footwear. Keep it classic with the eye-catching style that started it all. Barely changed since its birth in 1960, the Dr Martens eight-hole boot in cherry red is statement footwear built on solid foundations. With Goodyear-welted soles and smooth leather, a pair of these will ensure you always get off on the right foot.
Sported by a slew of style icons including Alexa Chung and Cara Delevingne, Mulberry has grown from a family-run business based in Somerset to become one of the world’s most coveted leather fashion houses. Impeccably crafted and timelessly chic, this brand’s trendproof bags make for heirlooms everyone will hope they’ll inherit. Launched in 2003, the Mulberry Bayswater bag boasts a sophisticated style that will never date. Expertly crafted from the finest leather and finished with subtle hardware, it’ll lend your everyday look a certain polish.
A mainstay from the tennis court to the football terraces, Fred Perry takes its name from the Stockport-born three-time Wimbledon champion who helped found it in 1952. No man’s wardrobe is complete without some Fred Perry classic casualwear, instantly recognisable for its embroidered laurel wreath and contrast tipping. Inspired by the original tennis shoe, these ecru canvas trainers are the kind of versatile off-duty footwear that play as well with tailored sportswear as jeans and a tee. Ace.
The toast of farmers and the fashion elite, Barbour has produced some of the world’s best weather-defying outerwear since its humble beginnings in South Shields in 1894. Masterfully cut and smartly designed, this heritage brand’s waxed cotton jackets are the last word in equestrian chic. Style out rain, wind and whatever else Mother Nature throws at you with this Barbour waxed jacket. Made from 100% water-resistant waxed cotton, this all-weather outerwear staple features a contrast tartan lining and the signature Barbour branding.
A rebel at heart, Dame Vivienne Westwood turned her back on a career in primary school teaching to revolutionise fashion with her punk-inspired designs. From pirate boots to political T-shirts, her daring wares are provocative and impeccably crafted. No wonder she was awarded an OBE (which she famously received sans knickers!). Lend your look a little drama with this orb watch. Nothing short of a showstopper, its black dial and embossed leather strap are perfectly complemented by the brand’s signature gold-plated orb motif and charm.
